I was thinking Farage might be crazy enough to fight the Tories or have that big of an estimation of himself to do so but it looks like some sort of agreement has been made between them. This might also put even more emphasis on Brexit in the GE.

I wonder if we'll see a pro 2nd ref alliance between Labour/SNP/Greens/Plaid. The Lib Dems have said they won't work with Labour. Labour have said they won't do a coalition - that will have to change - but they haven't specifically singled out any of the centre/left parties.

I dunno the SNP have said that they would be happy with a hung parliment because that might give them more leverage and there basic agenda is to leave the UK but they atleast don't want to be forced out of the EU. It's a shame about the Brexit Party they really did have the potential to split the leave voters in the most hilarious way it already happened in the Welsh by-election where the LibDems took a seat from the Tories. A second referendum still seems very taboo for some reason I think whenever it's been put to the parliament as an option so far it's always had a very low vote.

The Greens have stepped away from IDS's constituency to let labour have a run at him haven't they? He got in by about 2,400 last time and the Green candidate took 1,200 so there's a chance it might work. So there is some cooperation going on.

I've heard it suggested that maybe Labour should reciprocate for the Greens in constituencies they can't win, and on some level I can seen the point, but I just had a quick once over the 2017 results and aside from Lucas, who doesn't need that help, she was elected with 14,000 votes to spare; there were only about 3 constituencies where they polled above 10% and in only one of those did they come second (that was Bercow's constituency and by convention the 3 main parties don't appear to run against the speaker, in any case that was a Tory seat since 1970), otherwise their vote seems to be at around 2% in most places.

Here, d'ye think Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales could just form a new union and leave England to go solo?

Unbelievable. The BBC have boosted the sound on Corbyn's mic while he's not speaking to make him sound like a heavy breathing weirdo. I do this for a living and this was definitely done purposefully to make him look bad.

HMMMMMMMMMMMMM


Like if it was one of those X/Y prosumer things that are ubiquitous now and her mic was too low there'd be a possibility that some bad engineer summed it to mono and then boosted her segments up to his volume level. That's possible. Its absolutely awful work no matter who did it but it is possible.


Or

There was some generic compressor running wild it'd be possible in 2-track mixdown to fuck up like that.

However,

nobody with a job would let that pass.
